Great result AW. Love it when a plan comes together. With a two min negative split for a 2:53 it won't be long until you're sub 2:45 and some more.
some other good racing going on too I see from S(imon)L and LJ.
Wardi, nice work fella. Good to see that you were close enough even though you haven't don't a 5k for a while.
Coro - nice to see that it looks like you'll make it to the start line and will no doubt end up with a highly commendable performance. That 22 (?) from you the other day made my jaw drop. How can you possibly do that when you haven't really been training?!?!
TR - hope the injury is on its way out and you can continue with the streak of 2:5xs
Dids - thanks for continuing to brighten my day with tales of how you're going to be Overall's very own ToD.
Jools/Speedy- hope the colds/bugs bugger off. Speedy - Edinburgh is a good one but accommodation is likely to be expensive if you're in a hotel.
Other SL, looking good mate. Hoping we're in similar sort of shape for two weeks time. Knocked out a new course record in a solo 15:18 at Gdansk (Poland) parkrun which was probably a little (c40metres) short. But given bits were on trail/snow I'm guessing it was worth roughly the same if you get my gist. Can't count it as my 5k PB but never mind. 18 and a bit today in c6:12 pace. Shelling peas.
I know I'm a bit of an occasional (was i ever a frequent) poster these days but I hope to join some of you in the red lion afterwards. And will see a number if the usual suspects in the champs start pre race.
